Me against I-95

We’re on the road and headed to our vacation destination! Woohoo!!!


I’ll have a full report later on what’s its like to drive five hours with a fifteen month old… but first… I want to get some things off my chest…

Confession #1: I have an abnormal obsession with this clothing website! Its like a cheaper version of Anthropologie. Their clothing style is ‘current vintage’… Does that makes any sense?? If you’re in the market for a super cute dress, this is your place!

Confession #2: I made a batch of brownies for some friends last night. Without even thinking I placed the empty bowl in the sink and squirted a dab a dish soap. I quickly realized that I didn’t do my traditional “lick the bowl”… I took my finger and scraped the parts of batter that weren’t touched with dish soap.

Are you grossed out? Don’t be… I didn’t get any dish soap in my mouth… promise 🙂

Confession #3: The D.C. Housewives make me wanna puke! I’m a huge fan of Bravo’s Housewives Series… but D.C. is a huge disappointment. There’s only one problem… I watch it anyway! What’s wrong with me?!?!??

Confession #4: Right now, as we’re driving, I’m consuming a 32-oz soda fountain Diet Cherry Coke from 7 ELEVEN. I know its unhealthy, but it could be worse… I could be consuming a 32-oz Mountain Dew… 😉

I’ll see you on Monday from my vacation destination!

Now its your turn… CONFESS AWAY….

    I’m laughing right now because I turned on DC housewives for the first time last night and it was AWFUL. I kept it on for half the show and then turned it off. It’s kind of ridiculous!
    Confession: I didn’t eat one green food yesterday, all I ate what oatmeal, crackers, bread, pancakes, polenta etc. Wasn’t feeling it and needed that sort of day! Have fun on your vaca!!

    I ran 16 miles on Sunday and at the end all I wanted was a big Diet Coke from the soda fountain. I had it! I’m also sucked into the Housewives from DC. Why? No idea!

    Have a safe trip! I need to check out that clothing place…I think that may be my newest obsession! I am in desperate need of a vacation!

    You’re traveling five hours with a 15-month-old; I think you’re allowed a soda. 🙂

    I agree DC Housewives is terrible! But, yeah I still watched most of it!

    Hah, what great confessions! I love a good fountain drink sometimes – especially in the summer after work….so good 😉

    Something about road trips – I always have to either have a diet soda or a flavored coffee.

    My confession goes with my post from earlier this week. I gave in to my pregnancy craving for McDonalds.

    I check my mailbox 3-5 times a day, even after the postman has come by.
    I guess I really love getting mail.

    I ALWAYS have soda on road trips!! There is just something about them!
    Confession: I’ll be having one right along with you in a few hours! 🙂

    Have fun on vacay!! *See* you when you get back 🙂

    My confession (1): I taste test right from the pan/ pot, even when guests will be eating it. And I can’t really say I always get a new spoon ;P

    Havent’t watched any of the DC houswives, but (confession 2) I watch Jersey Shore. hehe AND, when out last Fri (confession 3) I may or may not have fist pumped a little at the bowling alley when the music was bumpin’. HAHA

    Confession 4: We’re going out again tonight and I can’t promise I won’t fist pump if I’m feelin’ the music ;D

    Estela, Uncle Billy bought a 20 oz Mountain Dew during our drive home (14 hrs) from South Carolina just to stay awake this morning!

    neat website!

    Sometimes soda just hits the spot. Especially on long drives.

    I cannot watch the DC Housewives. I don’t know if it’s because I’m from there and it embarrasses me, or if it’s because that Michaela chick is just drivin’ me nuts!

    Confession — I could sit for hours and lick Nutella out of the jar with my fingers only if I have no civilized utensils laying around…

    Have a great vacation! I rarely drink diet soda but once in a great while, it’s soooo good!
